I’ve been getting a ton of emails from people asking me how I’m doing health-wise since my prior post. First I want to say a big thank you for the concern, it’s slightly overwhelming but certainly welcome. Second, much has been happening, so here we go.
I have been getting sicker, it involves loss of appetite, a lot of physical pain, tiredness, disorientation, etc. The bone deterioration is unrelenting and as such I have had to make a move. If I continue to wait to have an operation there’s a very good chance of something very serious happening that I won’t be able to bounce back from.
So this week I managed to secure about $10,000 in loans to have the first part of the operation. This is the part that saves my life, this is also the part that is the most painful physically. I’m not going to get into the procedure, but they told me I will have to learn how to talk again, that’s something to look forward to!
I’m scheduled the first week of August, so if I’m not around much then, please excuse me.
I’m not entirely sure how to pay these loans off and keep my life afloat, like for many of you times are tough right now, but I really have no choice. The doctor bills have wiped us out, I’m just being straight with you guys.
I’m not outright asking for donations to offset these medical costs, but if you have a rich uncle that ever enjoyed anything I’ve recorded, etc., feel free to ask him to hit that donate button on the page. One thing I’ve learned in the last 20 years of being clean and sober, I have to put aside pride and ask for help. So that’s what I’m doing.
I know this isn’t very rock n’ roll, and I hope all this frank and open discussion doesn’t come back to bite me on then ass somehow, but I feel like we have somewhat of a community here and I’d want to know if you were having a tough time too.
Thanks for all the love and prayers.
And now this…
